Local artist and entrepreneur Gabriel Pons will be among the speakers at the the first annual TEDx event being held at Edward E. Drew Middle School this Saturday, November 15 from 10am-4pm.
What is a TED Talk? Simply put, a TED presentation is a focused talk to spark discussion and connection with the audience. This year's theme is "What can I do? Improve, Invent, and Inspire".
Gabe's talk is titled "Myths of Making: Demystifying Creativity". He'll be drawing upon his experiences as an artist, gallery owner, skateboarder and father to dispel preconceptions about the creative process and encourage innovation. He's excited to be one of a dozen speakers from a variety of different fields residing in and around Stafford County.
Tickets are available via EventBrite ($25 for Educators, $30 for Non-Educators, $8 for students). Space is limited. All funds go towards the event and the event is not for profit. Note: Purchases using Eventbrite are charged a convenience fee.
